June BH Weekend in Kerry

Between listening to the a radio & reading the Kerryman over the past 24 hours I reckon there is something on to cater for everyone in every corner of this wonderful county of ours over the BH Weekend ! I’m still actually getting used to the fact that it’s upon us !

Here’s a synopsis

Try Killorglin for the K Fest Music & Arts Festival– huge line up. Hope to get a trip in myself ! See the poster. As the Kerryman said “A unique blend, so expect the unexpected” – promoting culture through art gallery exhibitions, live music (on & off the street), film, spoken word & Childrens Workshops. www.kfest.ie

Try Listowel where you can let your imagination run riot at Listowel Writers Week. The Children’s programme is bigger than ever, but it’s not just for the little ones as there’s something in it for all ages ! The Town Park & Community Centre is the central hub of the Children’s Literacy Festival. 📖📚📖📚

Listowel Races is on Sunday & Monday with prizes galore for Ladies Day on Sunday. 🏇🏻🏇🏻 Let it be your chance to say to hell with the skinny jeans I’m putting on my glad rags. 👒💄

If your out & about in Killarney there’s the Tatoo Convention coinciding with this years BikeFest (Vroom Vroom 💨💨💨). It is Ireland’s largest free biker festival – all makes, models and manner of bikes are welcome! Indoor & Outdoor Entertainment guaranteed. www.irelandbikefest.com

Siamsa Tire has a new stage production on called Turas – featuring music & dance from all corners of Ireland. I’ve just watched a video clip promoting this on their website www.siamsatire.ie. Looks seriously full of energy.

If your into the Outdoors the list becomes endless. For Walkers or Hikers, there’s oodles to choose from: the 180km Kerry away begins in the little village of Dromid, Slí Chorca Dhuibhne has various routes or why not try a section of the Wild Atlantic Way. Mountain Climbing galore. Weather permitting of course.

If the weather doesn’t hold up there’s lots to keep the children occupied, Dingle Ocean World, The Climbing Wall (also in Dingle), Crag Cave, bowling Buddies, Muckross Farm I could go on !

Let’s hope the weather does hold up & we can all get out & about. I plan to do a more detailed post on some of these visitor attractions over the next few weeks so watch this space.

Have a good weekend ! Relax & enjoy !
